Pancreatic cancer is the growth of cancer cells in the pancreas.
Cancer occurs when cells in the body divide without control or order. Normally, cells divide in a regulated manner.
If cells keep dividing uncontrollably when new cells are not needed, a mass of tissue forms, called a growth or tumor.
The pancreas is a long, flattened pear-shaped organ in the abdomen. It makes digestive enzymes and hormones including insulin.
